-1 domain and 1 subdomain
-10 cleric-related feats
-List of deity favored musical instruments for the Porphyra setting.


Nice to see you turning up here Arcanemuses.


Wish I'd known about this. I had an archetype I would've asked about submitting for it. I'll be sure to check this out.

EDIT: The firearms and holy water bomb feats are awesome.

I'm digging the friar archetype. Just seems absolutely perfect for that mental image of the priest in robes with a staff. I may actually use that in a game I'll run soon enough here (maybe a few months though)

As for the hybrid class, I kinda skipped past it because I'm not really any good at that. I can't judge power level at all.

That said the feats seem really unique too. I really enjoy being able to add versatility, which is why I get a kick out of the feats that add spells to the spell list. Even if it means you have to be tied to a specific domain, it makes sense flavor-wise so you're not just gaining the benefits from nowhere.

I know a few other 3rd party archetypes I think that would love that Faithslinger feat. I also enjoy the image of the gun-wielding priest, and something I'd love to setup as well in a more "wild west" style campaign

Sepik121, you've made my day! Thank you for the kind words! Enjoy the friar in your game.


If you've ever played Mount and Blade: Warband, there's a friar in game you can hire to be part of your military (he's one of the best doctors in the game for your followers). I'm going to make exactly that :P

The idea I'm having personally is using the new horror adventure corruptions. Each party member will suffer from some sort of corruption, or have dealt with it for a while (get it at level 1, party starts at level 5, 2 manifestation levels via their corruption)

They'll work with some kind of a cleric and help them help the party. They'll meet said friar along their adventures a few times and he'll aid them in their quest somehow. Haven't fully decided yet. Maybe said friar is on a holy pilgrimage and runs into them a few times while doing so, and is obligated (or really just feels compelled) to help them cleanse themselves of their corruption.


Good to see some free clerical stuff. ;)

Dropped a few comments in the doc! A few notes:

Really loved the flavor you put into the Cycle Thrall- I think that's such an interesting take on a cleric that uses the elements to break out of the life/death cycle.

Also a huge fan of the favored keeper- a holy person with a familiar that shares the connection to their deity is awesome!

And the martyr has a slim chance of being the highlight of a campaign- which is rad.

It's exciting to see an open playtest doc!
